*******************  IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE  *******************
 WATER SHUTOFF MORATORIUM EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 31, 2021

Read More about Water Shutoff Moratorium

The City of Redlands is aware of the challenges faced due to the coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has caused on our every-day lives. In recognition of the financial hardship experienced by many residential and businesses customers, on March 4, 2020, Executive Order N-42-20 was issued suspending water shutoffs due to non-payment. The City of Redlands has complied with this order.  To provide additional assistance to our customers, the City also suspended the accruals of all late charges.

As this pandemic evolves, changes continually occur.  Most recently, a new executive order was issued extending the shutoff protection for non-payment on December 31, 2021.  As a result of this new order, the City will resume water service disconnections for nonpayment of all charges that accrue after December 31, 2021, and become 60 days past due. The City will resume late charge accruals for late payment of charges that accrue after December 31, 2021and are not received within 26 days of the bill due date.

If you have a delinquent balance, the City would like to encourage you to make a payment, as soon as possible, to reduce your account balance(s), or pay it in full.  To accomplish this, the City is offering a payment plan that provides flexibility and will spread out your delinquent balance over a maximum 12-month period. To start a payment plan, a down payment is required.  Please contact our Customer Service Division to make payment arrangements. You can reach Customer Service at 909-798-7516, between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, with the office closed alternating Fridays.
